This is in response to the feature story (Nov. 27) about the Trucksgiving project.

I am from a truck-driving family. My dad is a truck driver, my uncles are truck drivers, my late brother was a truck driver and I am a truck driver.

I am happy to see that people’s opinions about truck drivers are changing. Drivers got a bad reputation in the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s when low pay and horrible working conditions were pushing truck drivers to do things that were unethical.

Strict laws and better training since 2000 have turned truck driving into a professional and respected career.

I send my thanks to Bridget LaRoche and all of the people who helped her.
